Amazing Race Casting Call

By Michelle Bliss

Wilmington, NC – Judges for The Amazing Race, an Emmy Award winning reality TV show on CBS, are looking for contestants for next season.

WILM-TV, Wilmington's CBS affiliate station, is taping 2-minute auditions at City Tavern tonight.

Fans can grab a partner and try to win-over the judges for a chance at the show's final prize: $1 million. WILM-TV Sales Manager Terry Talbott has worked for CBS casting calls in the past and gives his advice for impressing the judges.

"There's kind of a template that they look for, you know, they've got best friends, somebody and their parent, and college sweethearts or that kind of thing. So if you kind of get yourself a partner and fall into one of those templates and then come be as interesting as you can possibly be, I think you've got a real good shot at consideration."

Talbott says the two-minute long auditions are complete free-for-alls contestants are free to do almost anything to make a lasting impression.
